Jenni Brandon’s “Dreams of Birds” is performed by Troy Paolantonio at the American Women in Flight recital. The recital is on Saturday February 15th at 11:00 – 11:50 AM in Potomac I room at The 2020 Mid-Atlantic Flute Convention. The convention is held at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport, 13869 Park Center Rd, Herndon, VA 20171.
Jenni’s “The Dreams of Birds” for alto flute and piano explores the world of what birds might dream. Would they dream of running, of flying to the sun? Would they dream of being human? I wanted to explore the possibility of bird dreams while continuing to be evocative of a bird with bird-like songs in the alto flute. The little turns and grace notes as well as the flutter tongue played by the alto flute offer the listener the voice of the bird. The piano, both supportive and, at times, grand, helps give flight to these dreams of birds. It was an honor to write this piece for Jenni Olson to premiere and record.
The Dreams of Birds for alto flute and piano (alto flute and piano sheet music) is performed by Jenni Olson-alto flute and Bryan Pezzone – piano on Jenni Olson’s new CD “The Dreams of Birds” featuring the works of living composers.
